Just swinging our balls off at the Cambugahay Falls on the amazing island Siquijor! After Bohol we went straight to the island Siquijor and we stranded at a new hostel called the Love Shack! We fell in love with the place and met some really great people to hangout with. Today we’ve rented a scooter to explore the island and met a few local people who were dancing at their beach and enjoying our company. So till now we really like the atmosphere and we hope that the other islands are as great as this one! Who can spot Tonnie by the way? Okay a little hint… He’s trying to strike a Victoria’s Secret model pose 😜 . . . #sandonourballs #cambugahayfalls #siquijor #philippinestravel #travelphilippines #philippines #philippinesgram #earth_pix #travelbuddies #asiatravelgoals #asiatrip #asiabackpackers #asiatraveller #asiatravel #travelbuddy #travelbuddies #backpackerstory #backpackerslife #backpackersasia #backpacker_pics #backpacker_photography #backpackerphilippines #backpackersphilippines #instatravelgram #djimavicair #dji #dronegram #dailytravel24_7

Siquijor is not only a place known for stories of magic and mystery, it also has numerous pristine beaches perfect for those who want to soak up the sun. And if you want to make this Holy Week more meaningful, the province also celebrates the Healing Festival during these days and it is observed through a Holy Mass, explorations and trekking.


Another destination that’s not too far from the metro is the province of Rizal. Priding itself with overlooking views of Manila and the Sierra Madre mountain range, Rizal offers many great places to unwind away from the city. Like Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa which offers superb relaxation and instagrammable facilities for that perfect post!

If you want to practice your surfing skills this Holy Week, then there is no better place to do it that In La Union. Named as the surfing capital of the north, the province offers plenty of beaches with amazing waves to ride. Visit Urbiztondo Beach, Sebay Surf Central or San Juan Surf Resort and put your skills to the test. Happy surfing!
